Unseen Orson Welles flick finally being released....

According to an article on The Guardian, the day has come for Welles unseen film The Other Side of the Wind to be released. Welles started work on the film in the late 60s, shooting periodically from 1969 - 1972, with Wells declaring that the film was 96% complete that year. Some short clips have surfaced on Youtube and add to the mystic of film as being cutting edge for its time through its use of alternative production techniques and psychedelic visuals. Now this definitely isn't Welles only unfinished film as he has several projects that have never seen the light of day. Despite this fact, we are definitely looking forward to its release.

Here is another clip.

As many of you know, the 2011 Sundance Film Festival is underway in Park City Utah. I had an opportunity to attend back in 2007 and loved every minute of it. We weren't able to go again this year but that hasn't stopped us from keeping up with everything that is happening at the festival. This year, the festival is streaming many of its films and panels for free online. That's right! So click here to follow what's going on.
